DKA is not a disease. It is a condition that results from high blood glucose levels and no insulin on board.jwags said:When you say high, how high do you mean? If bgs are in the 400-500+ range the smell could be an indication of a very serious disease called DKA. So call your doctor to discuss this with him. Are you on insulin?
You are not by chance taking a garlic supplement are you? My "odorless" GNC super garlic gives me an odor. (my opinion)When you bloods high I have odor.. b.o everything is this common?
83 is considered normal for people who are non-diabetic. 150 is elevated but personally I wouldn't consider it to be really high.My bloods never get that high the highest I have seen them in a couple years would be max of 300. Usually I stay between 70 and 150
Ketones are produced when breaking down fat for use as energy and there are always some ketones floating around. Insulin prevents the production of ketones. High BG has nothing to do with ketones other than it usually goes hand in hand with either no insulin or not enough insulin. Your body can produce ketones with low BG too since the brain can use ketones for energy in addition to glucose and with low blood glucose levels can mean low insulin levels and there is a possibility of your body going into starvation mode.DKA is not a disease. It is a condition that results from high blood glucose levels and no insulin on board.

Since that is the case, of course you should investigate the diabetes-related possibilities first. But also be aware that body odors commonly are caused by a bacteria that multiplies when it comes into contact with sweat. The areas of the body that are the most affected are one or more of these... the hair, groin, feet, armpits, ears, navel or privates.When you bloods high I have odor
I understand that, I wasn't commenting on the disease part, only the high BG part. You can have ketones with high or low BG. High BG usually goes hand in hand with ketones but is not a cause.Tater is speaking specifically of DKA, which is specifically not a disease. It is a condition of too high ketones plus too high blood sugar.
That's all he said.
